Thank you for tagging me :blush: Sadly, my time is quite limited for November (I hope to free up some time toward the end, but it’s all up in the air)! I wish you the best of luck with testing though, it’s super cute!

I can make whatever color you prefer. Probably brown or black if I pick. I have worsted (size4) yarn so it will come out a bit bigger but still defined. I usually make the items within a couple of days of being chosen. My insta is @deborahhunsaker though I don’t post there as much as I could. I’ve been crocheting for over 30 years. I am done with all my other pattern tests. Sometimes people don’t close things out.

Sounds good! As long as you’re ok with the envelope looking smaller in proportion to the amigurumi, it’s all fine :slightly_smiling_face:

I would use worsted yarn (I know you said he will be a big bigger relative to the letter but that’s ok!) I would make him a golden yellow color!

I have 3 1/2 legs done. Having trouble on round 6 of the rear legs. I am planning to work on him when I get home from work tomorrow. I’m not sure why it’s not counting out right for me. May just be me being super tired. The math looks right… Journal is done if you want to see. The color looks weird in the pics.
